Thousands of people took to the streets in different cities of Israel, to demand the resignation of the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, following the lifting of the specific limitations for protests during confinement.

The demonstrations led to riots in the town of Holon, south of Tel Aviv, with clashes between protesters and other groups that came to Netanyahu’s defense and attacked the former, pouring unidentified gas on them, Ynet reported.

Violent clashes

At least thirty young people, identified by the media as members of La Familia (an extremist front of fans of the Beitar Jerusalem football team), arrived dressed in black T-shirts, waving flags of the Likud (Netanyahu party) and provocative posters, such as “Leftists are traitors” or “a good leftist is a dead leftist.”

In the center of Tel Aviv and on Balfour Street in Jerusalem, in front of the prime minister’s official residence, there were also demonstrations against him.

Social anger

Yesterday the special emergency order that limited the demonstrations to groups of 20 people who were not more than a kilometer from their homes expired, so it is expected that the protests will now resume with more force. For four months there have been small protests almost daily and mass demonstrations every Saturday.

To social protest, based above all on the corruption accusations In three cases that Netanyahu faces and in a mismanagement of the pandemic, new publications are added this week about the possibility that the head of the Government was involved in a purchase of submarines on which serious suspicions of irregularities fall.
